OECD - Recognition of Prior Learning

This practical guide for policy makers looks at fostering learning pathways through the recognition of prior learning. 

'Less than 40% of adults in OECD countries, and only about 20% of low-skilled adults, participate in adult learning activities every year, according to the Survey of Adult Skills (PIAAC).'

RPL has a role to play in meeting the upskilling and re-skilling needs of the learner and enterprise.

'Including RPL as part of modular programmes allows adults to focus only on skill gaps and to benefit from personalised learning pathways. In addition, RPL is an essential instrument to improve the employability of adults. It makes all knowledge visible, including the diverse learning that takes place outside of formal education and training, and allows for a better match between jobs and workers’ skills.'
